7:02 am
a willingness to sit down with the lead. does all of the opposition to try and hammer out their grievances. with the muslims. there why did you know so i e i think people should have the freedom of expression provided they act according to the model and can anyone should have the right to demonstrate but if people break the law then law enforcers have every right to legally demand the law be upheld the people don't want a revolution you know one managed to see chaos need to talk to the opposition they should have their say and be able to use their constitutional rights to demonstrate a credible of good d.c. . well produce the food and also addressed u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton saying that she was too quick to criticize rush's elections that were held on sunday he said that she did so without having listening to having listened to the words of the international observers who were
7:03 am
there to monitor the elections that she came out far too soon saying that these elections were neither fair nor free with how tearing what those international observers had to say now with regards to international observers prime minister putin said that russia was open to letting people in luxor and observe these elections but that they would not tolerate outside interference in russia's domestic affairs. ask the question which of them are partners shake us from time to time so that we don't forget who owns this planet so that we know they have methods of pressure and influence on our country from within which was finished and when it comes to humanitarian or health issues that's one thing but when foreign money is being invested into internal political affairs that should make us think it's a little much what's especially on acceptable that it's a flow of foreign money into the electoral process it's absolutely unacceptable even used. by the pm they're warning foreign powers not to meddle when it comes to
7:04 am
russia's political life. we've seen. two days of both pro and anti government demonstrations taking place across moscow how's the situation now. well across russia no it's all very quiet we have seen protests well thousands of people protesting both those in favor of the united russia the ruling party here in the country and those to of been protesting against what they see as electoral fraud which took place during the fall of entry elections on sunday now president dmitri medvedev has said that a full investigation will be launched into all allegations of vote tampering that have been put forward concerning that vote and that anybody who is found guilty of having meddled with that with the electoral procedure will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law and finds that update i was in control of their life for us and that thomas k. . falls about the situation of the pro and anti government protests here in russia
7:05 am
and this is how one american news channel portrayed what's happening. america has its fair share of protests and political dissent to be dealing with instead of keeping an eye on the ball the country's mass media machine has turned to protests in russia and dropped the ball on reporting the facts. the protesters have gathered at moscow's lashing out against prime minister vladimir putin and his russian party the only problem is that this video is not from russia fox news channel aired a video of fires and chaos in athens convincing viewers that this mayhem is playing out in moscow the fair and balanced network paid no mind to the greek lettering in the background in case you're wondering it says greek national bank what matters is that this is what moscow protests have looked like it's not surprising whatsoever
7:06 am
that at the moment that there would be any kind of protest no matter how small it be in russia against the russian government that it would be greatly exaggerated in media and used by the u.s. government as well as a way to try to somehow push for a change in russia that would be more favorable to u.s. interests journalist and author eva golinger believes mass media is washington's most valuable weapon in encouraging revolt elsewhere under the mantle of spreading democracy such as the so-called orange revolution in ukraine. or rouge revolution in georgia a. perception is created that something is happening in the country that's not right and that the government is somehow responsible and so therefore if that government ends up being removed it somehow is justified that you know the media has played a key role in creating a justification for regime change similar anti-government demonstrators have been reported and other city in russia u.s.
7:07 am
leaders have leveled harsh criticism against russia in the aftermath of sunday's parliamentary election and critics say it's free press has worked. to reinforce the narrative the media tends to march in lock step with the government tends to take its cues from the government it tends to you know mobilize its resources to showcase what the government says is true even when later it turns out not to be true as was the case in this rooney is c.n.n. report well in eastern russia more than three thousand people protested against proposed changes to the country's time zones the video shown by c.n.n. is not of protesters but rather of soccer fans riding in moscow over the killing of a fellow supporter the problem is that we showed the wrong pictures only after the error was repeatedly noticed c.n.n. owned up to its mistake and to apologize for the era of grateful to the many russian viewers who've pointed out to us the sloppiness of it or is reflecting you
7:08 am
know the lack of awareness of the journalists themselves many of them are completely uninformed about the world they have opinions that have no factual basis to him but it doesn't stop them because it's what looks good that matters more than what really is true the truth is that america has its own social economic and political challenges to be dealing with and while washington works on getting its own house in order powerful mass media outlets can work on getting their facts straight marina point nine or r.t. new york now nato is refusing to take moscow's security concerns into account and isn't ready for a serious corporation on a missile shield in europe so says russia's foreign minister he met his counterpart of the us that alliance headquarters let's get more details about syria he's in brussels for us it has been some harsh words there from the foreign minister lavrov has no progress been made at all. well let's just say that they do agree to
7:09 am
disagree especially on the issue of the missile defense system in fact going into these talks it was already expected to be tough a long and serious talks they extended for an hour in a closed door meeting and at the end of it both both sides gave their points of view and when the foreign minister said. that he doesn't think it was ready for a dialogue with russia on fundamental issues with that he's referring to the missile defense system in europe and he said that when nato advice russia for talks he gets a feeling that they come into these talks with already a mind made up their mind on the kind of pursuit that they will have so in fact no dialogue is possible however on the other hand secretary general of nato has said that they have listened to russia's side and hopes that the russia would dallas and tomatoes concerns over the of course that is still not how russia feels not all of this uncertainty with no legally binding guarantees on the missile defense system that it is not targeting russia it's all verbal russia has beefed up its defense
7:10 am
capabilities especially on its western border and that russia had also said that it may be forced to deploy modern weapons systems if again they don't get this kind of paper guarantees that they are asking for. nato should respect russia's right to protect its territory and how to explain that of course russia would be afraid because or would have that concern because if nato radars are positioned so it's a sure way that most of russian territory is visible then of course russia would have to do something about it but it has to be noted though that when both sides were giving their take they were calling each other partners and they still hope that some sort of agreement will be reached. that hopefully a political agreement will be reached before the end may two thousand and twelve summit where nato will unveil its provisional structure and operational correct your mistakes of that missile defense defense. certainly very important to have
7:11 am
a russia agreement with russia on that point and also they reiterated the united ninety seven agreement that they have on the use of force but at the end of the day all of these are words coming especially from nato promises assurances still verbal they've given it for a very long time however russia is asking for something on paper a said he loved it said words are temporary but military realities are permanent test how many patents but also use ten celsius there in brussels for us. and still ahead this hour occupy washington the strikes of the mall will not be as hard out of protesters arrested in the u.s. capitol and the latest government attempts to break up the out of britain is going to cost america. fierce competition among indian universities forces the country's brightest and delegates to go for foreign pullback. it's the latest day of reckoning for the single currency is europe's leaders gather in
7:12 am
brussels for a key two day summit that will decide that we did future germany and france are pushing the new e.u. treaty is to bind the nations into a close knit school union with its own taxes and penalties however not on the euro zone states the more it is them isolated to be creating a two speed europe the u.k.'s guarding its own national interest saying it won't cite any harm its financial sector the european council president has proposed amending existing treaties to avoid lengthy battle fiction ratings giant standard and poor's has now put the whole new alert warning all twenty seven member states are facing a downgrade financial analyst you know how all the veld says if leaders fail to reach a solution of brussels the euro is basically would do what if by the weekend there is no agreement on how we should go forward or do agreements is very very good or not detailed enough the markets willing to interbreed that kind of result was
7:13 am
more or less the end of the road for the euro and that point in time we will have a real existential crisis of the eurozone which means that in a very short period of time also germany will come under pressure the big question is whether we will have automatic sanctions when countries are more following the rules in order to save the euro you need this. all these members don't and eventually all the european member countries to be prepared to give in on some aspects of national sovereignity this debate question that is running through every question that is being put on the table and the answer to the question of whether one is prepared to give up on national sovereignty seems to be quite clear no one of the proposed powers that many don't want brussels to have if you're already to impose austerity measures on bailed out countries people in southern europe would
